Several Naga organisations have lauded the first ever meeting of top leaders of three Naga underground groups, saying the September 18 'summit' has given a new hope for an end to three decades of hatred, bitterness and bloodshed.
Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC), in a statement, described the event as 'a landmark' in the Naga re-conciliation process despite many hurdles.
At the initiatives of Forum for Naga Re-conciliation (FNR), NSCN (I-M) General Secretary Th. Muivah, his counterpart in NSCN(K) N Kitovi Zhimomi and NNC/FGN president S Singnya met at a private residence at Dimapur and made a joint declaration expressing their commitment towards ending hostilities and fostering mutual understanding.
Congratulating both the FNR and the Naga underground leaders for the 'epoch-making summit,' NBCC peace affairs Director Rev. Kari Longchar exuded confidence that top level leadership would be capable to weather difficulties and reach the objective of 'a unified Naga voice'.
The apex tribal council Naga Hoho, in a statement, appreciated the FNR and said "a ray of hope surfaced when re-conciliation process was launched by the FNR under leadership of Rev. Dr Wati Aier."
The Hoho further described the September 18 summit as 'a red letter day' in the annals of Naga political history.
The tribal council also made an 'earnest' appeal to other Naga groups those who were yet to join the re-conciliation process to renew their vision and tolerance and partake in the 'nation building process.'
The Sumi Hoho also asserted that the historic meet was the desire of all the Nagas, irrespective of political or tribal affiliations ever since the 'journey of common hope' began under the initiative of the FNR.
Chakhesang Public Organisation (CPO) lauded the highest level meeting of three underground leaders for demonstrating their commitment "before God and the Naga people".
The CPO also urged other Naga groups, yet to join and participate in the Naga re-conciliation process initiated by the FNR two and a half years ago, to come forward.
The Network of Nagaland Drugs and AIDS Organizations (N-Naga DAO) expressed pleasure at the summit of underground leaders, saying "it’s a promise of a new dawn for our Naga society."
The lone Rajya Sabha MP from Nagaland, Khekiho Zhimomi appreciated the move of top leaders of three Naga groups for their first ever joint meeting.
